    I switched to Bing awhile ago. The sad thing is that most people are still using Google. However, for business, I still use adwords for advertising.

    I've been saying this for months now. You can't find shit like you used to be able to with Google anymore. It's total crap for people who are actually searching for things.

    That means your using a program without a proxy that is doing automated searches or there is a lot of people on your network searching Google (Maybe).

    One man can definitely not search that fast to cause a Captcha.

    If you have seo quake on turn it off when your doing query's (unless you are checking the stats). I noticed having seo quake when I'm just doing regular searches causes the captcha alot.

    I think i am getting correct results on Google rather than Bing? Blackhatseo tactics is major problem for google search algorithm and as google officially announced that he will bought hundreds of new improvements to their search program this year. Still google has 80% share on search engine.

    Imagine billion of pages? and Correct results in search?
    Millions of Webmasters trying to get top ranking???
    What will do thousands google employee whose trying to keep search results better?????

    I think of this like the stock market - when it starts to crash people get scared, but it creates unbelievable opportunities for people who are willing to take risks and get better - there is opportunity here as well

    Me too, I removed google.com from my default page and replaced by Bing.
    I think Yahoo has even more accurate results compared to Bing: if Yahoo was lighting his interface, it will come back my favorite search engine (back 10 years ago...).
